Draft: That the above figure, 19.05 m., is given on the basis of mean water level and brackish water (density 1.013). There is very little tide at Gothenburg, only about 20 cm. (8 in.). The draft is more affected by wind, Easterly winds blowing the water away from the coast. Westerly winds blowing the water towards the coast. In winter and eariy spring (January-May) there can be long periods of Easterly wind, when it would be prudent not to arrive on a deeper draft than 18.60 m./brackish water Lightering: In case of need lightering can be arranged 3 nautical mites S.W. of the Trubadur Lighthouse. This is in open sea and restricted to wind force less than 6-7 m./s.

For crude oil distribution to other refineries lightering can take place across the finger jetty from Berth No. 801 to Berth No. 800.

Gas lightering is being done via 8 in. acid proof steel pipe-line across jetty. Flanges drilled to ASA 150 and 300, No hoses available, vessels have to provide same Ballast: Can not be received ashore.

Dimensions: The harbour is prepared to accept vessels exceeding 335 m, length provided distance from bow to manifold is max  180 m. and vessels' draft does not exceed 18.29 m. (60 ft.), brackish water-Special approval needed in each case. Bunkers: Supplied by barge only.
